And the knowledgeable staff at Michigan Specialty Glass can help you with that.

At Michigan Specialty Glass, we have a passion to help our clients acquire exactly what their situation calls for and to see that those needs are satisfied.
One of the first things that we will help you determine is what type of safety glass would be best for your particular situation. The two most common types of safety glass are laminated and tempered. Laminated glass is what is installed as the windshield of your car. This kind of glass is manufactured by laminating two pieces of glass together with a polyvinyl butyral inner-layer. The key to this kind of glass is that when it is broken, it will crack but it will stay together which means no danger of lacerations. Many people like to install laminated glass in a storefront because of the level of security it brings and the fact that it will remain in place even if badly broken.
Tempered glass is manufactured in a totally different fashion. Glass is heated to approximately 1200 degrees Fahrenheit and then rapidly cooled on the outer surface. It is this rapid cooling that causes there to be a tension between the outer and inner surface and this tension increases the strength of the glass by approximately sixfold. So, the result is that when the glass is broken, it will shatter into small blunt granules rather than large sharp shards.
